I love bacon, but I haven't been known to like blue...  So this burger probably isn't for me. 
 
Top notch video content though, duder!

Did you immidiately know that it's real or not? Because they keep saying "you know when it's real"...

Man, the idea of blue cheese on a burger just seems odd.  LOL  I keep seeing this, and for some reason, the advertising makes me feel like I'm un-American if I don't eat it.  Personally, though, I like the Wendy's square patty.  Don't know why, but it's always been nice to me. 
 
Good review, and the structure of the reviews is coming along nicely.

I concur that is good fast forward music. 
Nice picture quality as well.

@JeffGoldblum: thanks, I had my desklight shine in my face, it looked better 
@buzz_killington: The square burgers taste no different from any other fast food restaurant burger... false advertisement 
@jakob187:  @TheGremp: thanks

@TurboMan: Well, the thing is that Wendy's beef is definitely and totally BEEF, not some soy-mixed bullshit like McDonald's uses.  Even Wendy's Double Stacks and Jr. Bacon's are full beef patties.  That is something I appreciate greatly.  You can definitely tell the difference in the consistency of the beef at Wendy's and any other place.
 
However, you are correct - they lack flavor.  I think they rely too heavily on condiments and additional toppings to flavor their sandwiches.

I think I might have just had a bad experience with the luke warm patty.. but I've never been fond with their patty's either way... and I dislike their vegetables and toppings usually.

Yeah! Burger review!
 
I love blue cheese on burgers; I never get it enough. Sounds a bit expensive & less pungent than the normal Blue Cheese burger you can get at a nice (but casual) restaurant, but I'm still interested.

Nice, man.  I DO like burgers, and I appreciate candor on said topic. 
Keep up the good work.

Anyone else got around to trying this out yet? 
Next Burger Review suggestions?

What burger places do you have near by you that you can do a taste test with? Burger King, Hardee's, McDonald's & Wendy's obviously, but anywhere else?
 
Oh and though it doesn't technically count as a "burger", I think that you should review the McRib, since it's THE cult favorite sandwich. Not that it's amazing or anything.

I tried that yesterday mainly because I love Blue cheese on my burgers and it was pretty good, not favorite burger on the menu though.

@VinceNotVance: Not much else besides standard Fast Food chains, no Jack in the Box....  
 
I'm out of school this week, and at home.. might do a small fast food restaurant around here just for fun

Bleu cheese in burgers rocks, we do it at home sometimes.  Mix some chunks of bleu cheese in with the meet before you grill it, it's awesome.

I had this burger just the other day and I wasn't too impressed. I do think bleu cheese or blue cheese on a burger is a thing of beauty, but Wendy's can't beat the sit-downs. Also, I didn't taste the sauce either.

I'm with you on the no Tomato yes ketchup. 
 
Each review seems to get better and for some unknown reason pretty interesting as well so well done.
